View Full Version : Wipeout HD beta preservation

3rd September 2018, 11:44 AM
I have 2 builds of Wipeout HD that I would like to share to collectors. This is in preservation purposes. It is the somewhat famous epilepsy-version of Wipeout HD. I would rather call it review-version March 2008 and it is a game convention version called review November 2007. Let me know if there is any interest and I will share a dropbox-link.

This should be done for Pure aswell. I have at least 3 betas that are surely very rare. Anyway let me know who wants these files.

I'd be interested in archiving/preserving the builds you have as well :)

Wip3outIoannis and I have been hard at work this last week trying to unpack and modify the march 2008 beta so that all 8 tracks are playable. After finally figuring out how to do this I went to bed at 5.00 AM and can gladly confirm that I now have a pkg-file of the game where all 8 tracks are playable, also in zone mode. :)

Next step is to check with Wip3outIoannis if it is possible to convert it to an iso. This would make the game playable on any jailbroken PS3 and would not require debug firmware. I'm not sure if this is possible to achive.

I will try to do a similar mod with the October 2007 alpha and see if I can unlock the Qirex prototype ship that is present in this version. I will also try to unlock more tracks.

After inspecting the folder structure I can confirm that SL were working with the Fury tracks even before the release of HD. No assetts on these tracks though, only empty folders. More news will follow.

Great work, guys!
Would this work on a PS3 emulator? Donít have a JB PS3 unfortunately.

I only know of one PS3 emulator and it still has pretty poor compatibility. I can't really say other than when we share the ISO you just gotta test and see how it goes.

Prototype Qirex now playable. So is an unfinished EG-X that was present among the assets. Still trying to get the games running in DEX mode with ordinary Rebug firmware. Not quite there yet but still hopeful...
